much talked about theological teach- 
ing In colleges was under dlueusslon.

Rev. .Mr. Halgh oi:_Eiisiand waa pres- 
ent. . 

A resolution had been submitted by 
Mr. J. A. M., Atkins. K. C, Winnipeg, 
asking for the appointment of a tri- 
bunal to consider and adjudicate all 
cltarges preferred against theological 
professors for teaching or preaching 
unsound doctrine In church colleges. 
Rev. Di: Bland, pmtes.tcd asalnsl this 
MS it -would submit a professor who 
was afsba "rhTnister to a dual scrutiny 
— that of his annual conference and of 
his tribunal, lie moved an amendment 
adding that tlfis regulation should not 
contravene the functions, of an annual 
conferenio. The amendment seemed to 
li« satisfactory to the commtttee. ■ , It 
avoids exaiiiiiiing a mati as professor 
and as minister. On the other hand It 
reaches the case of a man who is not 
a iuember of the Methodist chtirch 
(e. g. Dr. Jackson who belongs ta.the 
British Wcslpyan . church) and It 
v.ould also meet the cose of a layman

•PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. .?ft.— The 
forest flres which are devastating varl- 
;ous parts of the northwest are more 
threatening tonight thari at any time 
this year. Save In the Colville coun- 
try In Wushlngtori, where the flres are. 
supposed to be under control, the 
situation is most discouraging, The 
most serious condition exists in the' 
.sou til of this state,"in that part of the 
Cascade forest reserve that, generally 
speaking, lies between Klamath Falls 
and Medford. Two fires are l-aglng in 
this district one npar Mount Mc- 
Laughlin (.Mount Pitt) and the other 
on island creek. This latter, lire 
thrpateiMMthe vtater supply and the 
electric light plant of Ashland. sJome 
fear 'Is .also expressed for the safety 
of the town Itself, but till* danger Is 
probably exaggerated.

by the then acting government agent, 

.\ir. Handall, aud work was .started 

upon clearing of the sil<\ in order that 

construction might proceed and be 

; completed this .season. Siibsecpiently 

the protest of the South Fort George 

residents resulted'ln the instruction of 

.Mr. Walker, government agent at Bar- 

ker\llle, to proceed to tlte scene and 

report upon Mr. Randall's selection. 

.\Ir. Walker sub8P((uentl.\' reported 

stating that the entire sentlnxent of 

'. the interested community vyas in favor

; flees at South Fort George, which 

I necessarily . has the Ijulk of present 

population. , ' 'i. , ; : ^ ._ 

j Upon the strength of thl* report the 
] Fort (.re'irge selection was oancelled 
'and Ttic office placetl at South Fort 
George. JSubaequently events tending 
to indicate that Mr. Walker's report 
had not been entirely uninfluenced, ri i 
reply to charges preferred aRalnst him | 
was retiuested, and all proceedings in; 
the matter of the offices were Set aside, j 
work being stopi>ed until such tinia |

Mr. Scanl6ii added that tjtje com-

The delegates to the conttsrence had 
an off time yesterday afternoon. Many 
attendod a reception held at the Chin- 
t'He Ulrla' Rescue( Home, I'ormorant 
street, while many parties took their 
Hr8t opportunity of sight scoin.i? and 
visiting the many beautiful spots in 
and around the city.

relegating to the background tlio Urit- 
ish Hag. 

The city council has patia.d a by- 
law which ensures the Hrltisli flag 
its due and. proper plaie. 

The bylaw reads as follows: 

"In every profession- or parade^ in 
which the "applicant foi- any such li- 
cense shall display atiy national (lag 
or flags, the said apprToant shall dis- 
play the British national Hag unfurl- 
ed, of not less than four and one-^alf 
feet (4Vi!ft.) by nine feet (9 ft.) in 'size 
aX the head of such procession or 
parade. If any Hags of other nations 
are displayed in such procession or 
parade, the same shall be unfurlod 
under or behind the British national 
flag; and for every (lag of any other 
nation so unfurled or displayed thcri- 
shall be unfurled or displayed at least 
two British national* nags of the same 
sizes' and dlrncnainns. The due ob- 
Hervance of\islons of this sec- 
tion shall be a condition to the grant- 
ing of a license under subsection :.'6 
of section 11 of this bylaw, ami np- 
<in a breaeh thereof, the city may 
recover the amount of the bond or re- 
tain tlie deposit to be furnished 
by such applicant in terms of section 
34 of this b\law.^ 

"No procession shall parade in the 
streets of the city of Winnipeg-- la 
which Rational (lags are displayed 
without having at the head of the 
Siald procession the British national 
(lag unfurled and (lowing, and, wher- 
ever the said t'rocesslon lias any flags- 
other than the British flag displayed, 
there shall be displayed' the British 
flag as the proper emblem. In a posi- 
tion above and in jirecedence to all 
other flags." ?

His View in a Forceful Ser-

I^ONDON, Aug:. 20.— A forceful and 
striking sermon, dealing with thcaub.-. 
jeot of empty churche-s and Sunday 
sport, was delivered by Father Bernard

expenditures because the raw mater- 
ial can be secured cheaper than that 
used by Eastern competitors, even 
though labor on the coast is relative- 
ly higher. We will have a profitable 
market inland for a cpn'aiderable dis^r 
tance, as well as the, business along 
the coast on both sides of the line, 
and will a!lso seek an outlet for, our 
product in the Orient ^and Australia 
and New Zealand. 

"A big dam is being .built, across 
Powell river at the falls a mile and 
a half inland. It will make a storage 
reservoir of Powell Lake,-^vhlch cx- 
tcnd's inland for forty m-ilos. From 
tlie aam ■ will lead a pOTver ■ canal' 

along-the bro ' w of a- hi l -}— ttT-a?t--exlt. 

through Penstocks, at the bottom of 
which the waterwheels will be located 
in a large power house. We are pro- 
viding for ultimate requirements pf 
45,000 horsepower, but , penstocks to 
handle only 26,000 horsepower are ber 
ing Installed for the present. . 

"Our company o\<fh8 21f» square 
miles of pulpwood and timber limits 

hoped th^ ^treme atateme 
be avol5(4(l 'Kurd that the whole prob- 
lem of religious education will be 
frankly and courageously discussed.- 
Some better legislation is needed. 

The committee had a sitting again 
last .ej&eniagL; from 8 to 10 o'clock. Mr. 
Ailteiis,.pre^ented.a motion to take yie- 
place ,of the one previously offered if 
the committee would consent, Whlcli 
It did. It was more elaborate than the 
motion offered in the nwirninir. The 
first clause »imi)ly stated that the 
boards and governors or any who were 
In authority Should see that the rules 
relating to teaching in harmony with 
Methodist doctrine are' strictly enforc- 
ed. Dr. Bland offered an amendmant, 
adding a clause protecting a minister 
from dual^scrutiny. ' . - 

The debate was then carried- for- 
ward vigorously for iiearly two hours. 

Dr. Burwash spoke counsel- 
ing steadiness and expressing, his will- 
ingness to make a connipromise for the 
sake of peace. One of the strongest 
deliverances was by Rev. A. J. Irwin, 
Mt. Forrest, Ontario, On the legal as- 
pect of the tribunal which" It was pro- 
posed to establish. Dr. Allison of Mt. 
Allison university made' a strong 
speech. Even those who d.ftfended, the 
motion admitted, the proi^osal tot: a 
tribunal yviik anomalous yet thought C-' 
was a necessary compromise, at this : 
staffe of the church's history. Dr. i 
BlanS closed the debate in a ■vlgt^roU.'' I 
speech characterized by fairness and i 
clear insight^ into conditions. The i 
afnend-ment was lost and the '^motion i 
ranried -Irr a go<)d majorttj'. The reao.- j 
lutioh passed', h'o>%*ever, does not make ' 
any change ■! in things as they are at 
present. The most difficult parts lOf 
the resolution are to be dealt with' at j 
a latter session. Much interest centres i 
in the debates, and there Is considera- 
blfr-feellng, especially among delegates 
of the central confdrence. The mari- 
time men and the western men are 
comparatively disinterested. •

keep away from th» «hurcJi that 
they turned their backji upon its door«. 
It' was im-lnful and ahocking to road 
these explanationii as to the real cause 
of the Irreligion of Ihe day. Today,- 
more especially than in any previous 
jierlod In the history of life, men were 
being drawn away fvoin liod through 
tile senses. It was through the senses 
(hat they • must ibrlng them back to 
Cod. They must assemble as members; 
of that mystical body, so that the 
whole of its members hilgHt he'vltal- 
iz(Ml, inaiilred, actuat-i-d, and doTwinated 
b\' one and tlie same Christian life. He 
would tell thum/ why the people of 
Knglajid did not go to church. They 
wi^re playing at religion; they were 
not lit dead -earnest about religion. 
They dl,d not really believe in a per- 
sonal Ood whu demanded of them a 
mCe worthy of a christian calling. They 
(.-liled to remember that a day was not 
long- hence When they would he rung 
up b.v the Master and told to give an 
account of their stewardship. The j 
people of Kngland were not going to j 
church because they did not see what 
tht;r.e-.iVi>8; to go for. If they were a 
thoroughly b'elievlng ppoi;lc they vvi-)ul(l 
be p'rac-tical in, their religion- -for they 
were pre-eminently a practical pf»o])le. 
Tbe-n the golf ball, the cf^pkct bat, tJie 
motor, the steamboat, the launch, the 
entertainments, the amusements, the 
expeditions, the river, the mountain 
and the road might offer ten tTl'ovi- 
sand times greater attractions than 
tlipy aiuually did, and those attrac- 
tions would fail to drag a n-;aa frtjm 
his church when be felt it his duty (o 

go. . 

There was the same reason for the 
empty church as fOr'-nTr-TOn5t5'-Cfadle._ 
,We have become centred, 'material 
people, loving frivolity, folly and am- 
usements before duties. What Eng-

on board the steamer which was to i 
bear him to the .\orth, found there a 
Ktrgeouis boiniuet of western tlowers. 

-Milh the brief message of "bon voy- 
age," the recognition and demonstra- 
tion of his position- by the provincial 
premier was admittedly The acme of 
the flttin.g and the<-hospltiible. 

Much curlosit.v' hajl been aroujjetl 
atwong the pressmen' of the visiting 
citerie in respect to the personality 
of the man who, as one of them ex- 
pressed it. "had hypnotized British 
Columbia Into turning Conservative."

there was a significant shrug of the!

LONDON, Aug. 20.— Np part of the , 
B ritis h domlnlems Is more anxious 
than~"Wale8 to pay~TCB tribute to the 
niemory of the .late King Edward. 
Throughout the long period that ho 
bore the title of Prince of .Wales and ; 
during his short re'sn of nine years, 
.he showed himself in complete sym- ; 
pathy with the best aspirations of 
Weluh nationalism. Wales has par- 
ticular reason to remember him as a i 
patron,of. thfe' national l^isteUdlod, a.s 
chancellor and protector of the Welsh 
ynlverslty, "arid as the monarch in 
■fthose reign of the national library 

were establlBheti by royal charterH 
grartted by him-. , 

Thre« schemes have been suggested 
as providing a suitable form of mem- 
orial to the late king. The -first, is 
that proposed by Sir Ivor Herbert, M. 
P., for transforming the operi space In 
Cathay Park at Cardiff, in front of tho 
University College building, and lr\ 
close proximity to the municipal an<l 
national buildings, into a "Koniro".an(l 
a national ■VValhalla," where statu- 
ary, representing ail that Is greatest 
and most Inspiring In Welsh history, 
would be grouped round" a statue of 
Ivlng Edward. - 

The second proposal la that Of. Mr. 
David Dewlcs, M. P., for the erection 
of B national, sanatorium for patients 
suffering from tuberculosis diseases: 
while the third suggestion Is that 
made by; Colonel Bruce Vaughan that 
the memorial should take the form ol' 
endowing the Welsh medical .school 
at (.'ardlff, and callirig It the King 
Edward VII, Welsh Medical school, 
and ralsliig an endowment fund for 
th.i Swansea and Cardiff hospltal.s, 
which would .iP£rinU^M._...bC).th. being 
styled, Hnyal— ajtd being named af te r 

the late King. ,„ .._ ;.._._„ .:j. _ 

Public opinion In Wales Is illvlded 
upon the merits. of these schemes. Sir 
Ivor Herbert's Idea -of a national 
monument, representing the herof^M. 
patriots, and the great men who have 
contrlhut(«d' to national culture, nnii 
glorj', centralizing' in the personallt.v 
<»t the late King— hlm»e,ll! a descend- 
ant of Ciuiedda through Ilonry Tudor 
— has many supporters, among th''ni 
being. IVlr. William Brace, M. P., Mr 
Llewelyn WllllanuH: M. P., and Mi. 
Koir Hardic, M 1*. The racial diffor- 
onces between .\orLli ;ind South AValcs.

tion of the street between Pandora 
Avenue and Burdette Avenue will be 
paved with asphalt while from Bur- 
dette Avenue to Humboldt Street bi- 
tuminous macadam will be laid, this 
change being necessitated p\ving to 
the steep grade of the roadway at 
that point. Asphalt oh the Incline is 
considered unsuitable 'owrlng to the 
fact that in wet or frosty weather the 
surface would be too slippery. ,, The 
roadway will be thirty-two feet in

_on will be that_of the widening of 
the sidewalks on Yates .Street between

Right here let It bo said that after 
Some careful dopipig the Giants look 
good for a place no better than third 
at the end of the seasdn. Pittsburg's 
playing has Improved 50 per cent, in 
the past few weeks. Chicago is going 
along at the old steady gait, hut Nev. 
York does not seem to be there. In 
tjie'flrst place, the Giants havs but one 
pitcher, Mathcwson. The otlvers ma\ , 
win Qhc day. but they lose the next : 
The other members, of the team, to<-. 
are not setting anythlitg on flre. r.^ooks | 
like MCGraW would hirve to bolster up : 
a^Httle. The fact. that a weak team; 
like the Cardinals niade the Giants 
look sick all season long shows the ! 
clas.s of the team, • Then witness, too. 
the recent scries w|.tTi' tRe" Cvibs, The j 
Glant-s-" were ' lucky to win one game i 
out of the bunch. Summing it all tip,,! 
It look.t like a fight between Chicago'! 
and Pittsburg in the National apd a !

have means ■were to contribute it 
Avould not ije hard to raise the fund

the plan, oniJe in operation. >»ould be,

care of thelj; t>abie8 and other house-

not th6 least of the benefits of the 

Miss McKenzle; herself is thoroughly 
iirauainted with ^'■- itmilflcatlons of 
each of the n^ . i .,w numbers j^' 
liundrevl and fiti.v-i-n. , who have been 
sent out bj- the society. . If one may 
judge, she la not easy to. satisfy. She 
knows, the arduotis life that her nurses 
must lead and how much Initiative 
•and reso urce fulness ' are reaulred to 
ensure .iitccess. There Is lUtle of the 
theorist about this superintendent of 
the Victoria Order ot ^Nurses. ' 

3n Victoria, itself, 'the -need ol a 
nurse for the very v)oor Is filled ejt- 
cellently by Mrs. Herbert though she 
reports, that there are sotiif times more 
cases requiring her care, than one 
woman, can attend to. -Biit the Home 
Nursing Society can be tlrufited to 
carry on the work they have done so 
efficiently for ydnrs. "\Vhe.ther there 
are enough people here, in poor but 
Independent circumstances, to employ 
i4__n.urBf who would grd in Jind help lor 
.a. few hours each day. Is: a matter 
thfit might well be made a subject of 
enquiry by the various wromen's . ^- 
cieties of this city. Recent reports 
would Indicate that there is far more 
ne^d of such aid than Is generally be-" 
litved. ■ ' - 

But whatever may be said of the 
lity, there ^'aft bf. little doiibt that in 
man.v^ districts ot this and neighbor- 
ing islands, the Victorian Order could 
do very valuable work. What do the 
Women's Institutejs th|nk about this? 

Some-.,! iiip ladles preseiit at the 
meeting addressed by ^f. Norton 
Ciritliths on' l-'rlday wanted to know 
whether there was any place in his 
-M h'lne for the l)rlnging' to this island

Is the maklng.'s of a good ball player, 
Init still Is in the making.^ And then 
to nuikc , matters worse Moore, the 
veteran of the right field, unfortun- 
ately .sprained an ankle in the first 
innings. Tiie fans may Lake this for 
what it is worth. Remembering tl>e 
Victorians' performance against Sno- 
homish a couple of weeks ago it seems 
icnsonable to suppose that the real 
Wattalet Pets can still play ball, and^ 
that Saturday's exhibition was oiily 
an accident. 

That brings the writer to another 
point. Next Saturday a treat is pro- 
niise(|. Sounds something like the 
proolamatfoh of a circus' mau, but ii'a 
right. Snohomish, the amateur crack 
of Washington, are coming back. 
They have Joined Xorces with Everett, 
the_steamer Iroquois has been chart- 
ered, and the team Is coming to Vic-, 
toria with one thousiand rooters. It 
to skin those speedy boys before thelc 
own ijeople, and that's what he la go- 
ing to try.

lory, the score being 141 to B9. The 
excellent batting of Messrs. Barnarle 
and Martin, with SI and 61 to their 
credit respectively, accounts for the 
signal triumph of the locals. Beyond 
the haltiugof Thomas, who carried

be five entries among tiie "big fel-

reduced to three through the failure, 
of both the Allaa and the Dorothy to 
get away with the gun. The three 
left were: A'eruna, Truant and Gwen- 
ol. They crossed, the line at 3: IB 
o'clock but it wasn't long, after they

Gwenol was forced to fall out, -her

ihp construction of ships of the Cana- 
dian navjV"The one nearest homo Is' 
the B. C. Marine Works at E.sinilmnlt ^

to the matter. " 

A few weeks baok notices were sent 
out bv the depur^inenl of naval affairs 
inviting responsible firms who In- 
tended tendering on the , construction 
of the ships of the Canadian navy- to 
s\ibmlt their names and .stating that 
if aijproved, thev would be privately 
.«<hown the .-\.diniraUy plana upon 
which to base their proposals. 

As intimated in the preliminary no- 
tice sent out the provis'»n3 of the 
Rush-Bagoi treaty preclude the con- 
struction of warships »on the Great 
I-,akes of Canada, but it is understood 
that certain of the Canadian firms are 
prepared to locate on the seaboard in | -♦• 
conjunction with some of tlia Brlilah j -^ 
interests. | '*- 

Recruiting for thf N'iobe will start at 
the end of next month or early )n Oc- 
tober. About three, hundred men will 
hnreaiiired. A particularly largo num- 
ber q£ petty officers, who will act as 
instructors, will come out with the' 
ship, whose complement, all told, -will 
be between bU and seven hundred.

A deputation i 
I of th e f"^'"- ■ 
try^who had an Interview with Mr. j 
Buxton, president of the board of i 
trade, a few days ago alleged, among 
other complaints, that seamen at Ant- '. 
werp are marked on the body with^hfei 
stamp of the shipping federation be- 
fore being engaged on Brltifh ships. 
He also .said that '^eofflB -WWpB" were 
being sent out. . 

Mr. G. N. Bapnes, chairman of the 
Socialist pkrty in the House of Com- 
rnons. said in' introducing the depu- 
tation, that the branding of seamen j 
by the Shipping. Federation seemed to | 
be infamous, and ought. to be stppped,4 

Mr. Buxton said that the board of, 
trade had no lD{6rm a.tjon as to the 
branding of men with the federation'^ j 
stamps, and he trusted th« reports 
were exaggerated. ■< 

"As a matter of fact," Mr, Havelock 
Wilson, secretary, of the Seamen and 
r jrumen's Union, said, "every year for 
the past three years 10,000' men of the 
port of Antwerp have be?n branded 
on the body before being enga^ fed on. 
British ships, and, in addition to that. I 
the men responsible for the branding 
hav^e made the men pay fees, from 
$2.50 to $25 ioT th e right of employ- 
ment."*'" ' ' -^ — '-- 

Mr. ¥. R. Foreiia, M. P. for East 
Hill, -a^ld that some persons thought-l 
the branding was done with red-hot j 
irons, but he believed an indlarubber 
stamp was used. 

"We say" it is Immaterial what 
stamp Is used," Mr. Wilson replied. 
•When It "gets down to branain^ men 
we object."

rived with the barquentlne Gcorgtna 
yesterday, is waiting here to take the

pressed with the good showing made 
by the barque In the matter*^ lum- 
ber carrying and the fact that ijhe has 
loaded over 100 per cent of h*r. ton- 
nage as related In yesterday'*- Prov- 
ince has caused rtiiujh comipent. Capt.

Breaks Record. 
With the discovery of an additional 
twenty-six Chinese hidden in the hold 
of the steamer Kumerlc at Portland 
yesterday, the stowaway record has 
probably been broken in the .history 
of Britain and Amerlban ports on the 
Pacific, The ^number of coolies who 
endeavored to enter British Columbia 
and is under charter to J. J. Mo ore L and American ports on the steamer 

trade, he did not know that operations 
of that sort were carried on at Ant- 
werp or aoy where else. 

The deputation urged' the deslratll- 
ity of constituting a conciliation board 
for the shipping trade, and Mr. Bux- 
ton .promised to do his best to see 
what could be done. 

As to "coffin ships." Mr. Wilson 
said the shipowners had made no 
overtures for a conciliation board, and 
the Shipping Federation was hostile. 
There were those who should never 
be shipowners. Such men would buy 
ships for 116.5.000 arid. Insure them for 
$275,000, and the first voyage of those 
ships Was their last. He was afraUl 
that the owners who were hostile, to ' 
conciliation were men of that class. 

Mr. Buxton said he believed 'tlie 
black sheep were few in number. He 
Agreed with the principle of a con- 
ciliation board urged by the men^ hut 
the situation required delicate handl- 
ing -- ' 

Mr. Cathay, of the Seamen's Union, 
afterwards said that the branding of 
men at Antwerp has caused the deep- 
est Indignation. ' * 

"Does It Boiiad reason," he said, 
"that any mdn would care'to be brand- 
ed like a sheep W^ha+ happens is 
this: A man is passed by some of 
the federation officials, ar)d Is then 
handed over to a doctor, who stamp.s 
the brand — a brahd of depradntlon — 
on his, wrist. ,1 have Just h«>ard that 
the practice has. been abandoned, but 
I cannot say this definitely." 

Modern Ivlcthods 

, and . painstaking mro In cleaning 
and pressing men's garments give 

I our work , the preference- with the 
men of care In their dress. 

Costs no more than less skillful 
Work, but what a difference In re- 

We'll call for and deliver your 
"orders If you'll say the word.

•JOHANNESBURK, Aug. ■>. 20.^=An 
interesting report on the clrctJmstance.'^ 
^ ttefuUng a recent riot at the Premier 

mine, ih'wHlch six natives wflre killed, 
has been preiiented to Mr. Innes, the 
magistrate appointed to Inquire ' Ihtd 
the ctiuse of the outbrenk. In .all, tlie 
mine gives employment tb 13,000 
blacks, Inrludlng^ .3,»00 Moshesh, or 'Bnsuto.s, and 6,000 .TranaVaal 
Basutos. , • -r '.•' 

The cheif Interest of the friqiili^y. 
says the report, circles round the per- 
sonality of the Moshesh Basuto, who 
i.s_inuch niore apjireclated by his ein- 
p I oyer 8 on account of )ii« phyqlrjue and 
Ititelligence. He Iriqks uppn hli'nself 
i\s the only black riinnin South Africa 
who has not accpptod the donfiinatlon 
of tile white man. Before his fellow 
native laboreri' be adopts a domineer- 
ing and mjuHlerfvil uttltud"?, 'and carries 
a line conceit of himself, " which, he' 
t.-iluw— no pains to conceal' from, his 
white or black associates In work. 

The Transvaal Bnsuto, to Whom the 
Mo.shesh have applied the objectionable 
Konerlc term of slave,*, looks upon the 
Moshesh Basiito as an interloper. 
Wherever the Moshesh are ^m proye d 
in large numbers with other native 
irlbos, the latter iha'ariably make com- 
mon caumragalnat the former, nhd the 
PremlfT Mine Is ni> excei>tlon to t'he 
riile. Ths- trouble arose through tlie 
,i;,ti' . : given the option of tuiv 

Ing (• ■! ' an extra shift .-^n rici'on' 
of a previous- :brcakdawn oi 
!t was apparently the readl; > 
Transvaal Basutoa to turn out uliiih

Suman Keada for Troptalea 

One of lliu explorers says thrit It is 
difficult to make oat whether thsPopu- 
an« are canulbal.s or not. Heads of the 
enemy slain In batUe are kept strun« 
from the ceilings of Ihclr houses, but 
It Is Impossible to say wbetlier the 
bodies have been devoured. 

Dr. Eric Marsbnll describes a remark- 
able native festival. Including a war 
dance and a pip sacrifice. Two full- 
Krown l)oar8, on each of which a man 
.■^nr-tisTtride, were led to an altar, while 
Ihe women, plastered In wet mud from 
head to foot, kept up a tremendous 
wailinR. Amid shouting and "toni- 
tominK" th6 boars wore' clubbed to 
death. The women then cut the car- 
ca»e» free and threw themselves on the 
dead bodies, walling- loudly In ecstasies 
of grl.of,. . . ., , , 

Afterwards there was Innocent T>iay, 
the women and Rlrls. many of them 
quite pretty, chasing the men up to the 
riverside and Into the water. ■■Thl.i Is 
one of the few ceremonies," Ur. 
shall says, "when the women are aUow- 
<-d to beat the men, the latter not beln»j 
permitted to retaliate. The damsel-s 
finally became so bold that Ihey storm- 
ed the camp.."., . 

Explorer's Tragic End 
Of Ihe natives at Wakatiml, wliere a 
base camp was formed, one of the ex- 
plorers writes; "They have collected in 
thousiuuls, and at present all are friend- 
ly and all hideously ugly. Dress they 
dr)nt boast much of— except a tiny 
strip of cUHh, With the exception of 
one or two of the young Blrls. the wo- 
men, too are hideous, but a few of the 
children look quite nice," 

Witliln a week of landing, Mr. Wilfrid 
.^talker. -we of the explorer.s. lost his 
life. He left camp alone to go shooting, 
and losing hlm.self, either became deliri- 
ous' with fever or ■w-ent mad. His body 
was found In a creek, the scratches on 
hl= face and body indlcatluK that he hnd 
been rushlnK through the undergrowth. 
T'le dlfriculties In the way of the ex- 
IHMllilon h.-ivo proved Rrealer than ex- 
l.fcted. The natives are showing them- 
selves treacherous and sly, and the 
transport problem l8,a_yery awkward

Aug. S, 1910- 
W, E, Scott, Esq., 

Deputy Minister of. Agriculture. 
Victoria, B. C 

Dear Sir: — I 
as follows: -^ ■ % * . • 

Reglna. Aug. 1, ISlO.^Managpr Ver.-. 
non Krult Co. here reports Aeven caaee 
raspberries arrived ,Tuly 28 f?om Vernon, 
B. C, were a total loss. Hot weather in 
the end of the season renders It almost 
impossible to ship raspberries long dis- 
tances unless shipped under ice.^ 1 saw 
peach plums from Mlaslon. B. C. In the 
Rcglha Trading Co.'s .store here had just 
arrived, were rotting and generaUy In 
bad condition, badly packed, and baaketa 
not full and short in weight in compari- 
son with Washington phims. I weighed 
baskets and crates of each. The B. C. 
plums were IH. lb. to bosket or B lbs. per 
case less than the Washington plum. I 
ahso Raw B. C. apricots from Vernon In 
the .same store were .sound but small and 
not packed, and were 4 lbs. less In weight 
than the Washington apricots per case. 
The manager and buyer of the fruit de- 
p.-vrtmenl of the Reglna Trading Co.'s 
store made this remark to- me: "Re- 
specting the fruit: If this la the manner 
or method In which B. C fruit Is going 
to be packed, graded and shipped this 
season, we want no more of it." 

.Xow It Is roost unfortunate that grow- 
ers and shippers should ship out fruit 
to arrive here In this condition as this 
did: Shipping associations, should super- 
vl.<4e and in.spect growers' , fruit, being 
shipped by them, and Individual growers 
and shippers must exercise greater care 
In packing, grading a-tid shipping, and If 
vou have a variety of fruit affected by 
fungus rot of any k?nd whatever, do not 
ship Into these markets. Market In can- 
nery or at home, as you will certainly 
suffer ,a loss and reallr.e unsatisfactory 
returns, and at the same time you nro In- 
juring the reputation of B. C. fnilt as a 
whole to a great extent as well as the 
Individual growers and shippers and 
shipping associations who are making 
every endeavor to put up a high-class 
fruit product to sell In these markets. 

I saw 25 boxefe of peaches from Kel- 
owna, B. C, in Jobbing house-here, had 
been packed' and shipped In apple'boxes 
without paiicr— just thrown In; appar- 
ontlly hnd been I'Ipe When shipped; were 
rotting; too much fruit In one box. 

•This method of shipping poaches is cer- 
tain to prove unsatisfactory to growers 
I ;ind shippers In tho way of dlmlnlsheir 
j return.s^ and at the same, time Is not 
! acceptable to tho trade here. Peaches 
i lining n tender fruit, should bo packed In 
i-tlitt right condltloii, well wrapped and 
1 pjirked and shipped In the regulation 
! pf'ich box. Don't attempt any I'nnova- 
I lions In the Way of (jhlpping unless you 
I lire prepared to pay for the experiments, 
I (uore particularly at this time, when you 
I are frying to move a good crop for pro- 
I fltablo rfiturns, I also saw 15 cases of 
! 'Hivet'to cherries Mra from the Progress

Hud llioy resolve not to linniUe U, C. fruit

method of doing liusiness Is most tni-

tne crop at fair prices In tliese markfrts:' 
yVvold selling too much In local markets 
as they have from .some American i)olnts 
a better rate Into V'ancouver than from 
Okiinagan Valley points. On the other 
hand, peaches arc a good crop, and 
prices quoted from American side 40, 
l.'i and 50 Qents per case, for the differ- 
ent varieties would Indlcato about 65, 70 
and 7 6 on a commercial iiasis of Oregon, 
Wash., prices for U. C. Tho other large 
fruits, apples, craps, pears, j)lums and 
prunes, will probably rule firmer at 
fair prices than Indicated from first re- 
jjorls, although plums and prunes are 
reported a heavy crop at some American 
points. It Is not safe to speculate on 
price at present. The latest n-pprts 
from C)ntarlo re large fruits are- favof- 
able to B. C. Jobbers and retailers here 
have been thoroughly advised of our 
good crop, and it Is for the B. C. ship- 
pers now to make good by placinjf them-

Gome up to the table and cat ~ here is the family breakfast that satisfies. 
You'll never buy ordinary Oats again onCe you tasta B&K Rolled Oats. 
The flavor is far more tempting, and another very important thing about 
B&K Rolled Oats is that they contain no hulls — they're not *'stringy" and 
fibrous like the ordinary oatmeal you ve been used to eating.

have constructed one of the finest

In 1910 — 1 convict prisoti, I joint

To the list for IMIO ar.> to be added 
two institutions of a refornialiuy na- 
lurr. which have during recent years 
I'cen establi.shed under the control of 
the board, viz., the state inebriate re- 
fi'rmatory at Ennis, in 1899, and the 

Borstal in»tUution fii,Clonmel. inl909. 
The number f»f ordinary priuoner.s 
committed to local prisons In Ireland 
in 1909. was 31,469. This .shows a de- 
crease of 1,363 un the number for 1008. 
The dally averas«^ number in- custody 
wan li,30ri, as compared with l',230 lor 
1908. The. fact that the daily average 
numbei' has not also decreased i.s at- 
tributed to a sliKhi increase In the 
uvoraBe length of sentence. Thenvm- 
ber of convicts lominilted to prisons 
In Ireland In 1909 was US, and the 
dail\ averagre number was 243. the 
corresponding numbers for 1908 were 
6,T and "JfS. 

The board says: W.^ luivo in pre- 
* vluus amiuiil rep,ort8 fre«iuenlly refer- 
red to the Inutility of very short sen- 
tences of imprisonment. year 
the number of prisoners committed 
under .•jentence of, seven days or less 
represented 41 per cent, .of tlie total 
imirnber of convicted prisoners com- 
mitted iidrinp the yearj 

.Vow that the i.unitlve aiile of prison 
treatniful is being: subordinated so 
much to the reformatory .side,, and 
that prisoners are made so comfort- 
able 111 prLsdn. short senter.ces 
have little or no deterrent influence. 
The result is that those on whom an 
p.ilequately !""B' sentence would prob- 
flb^^ have a deterrent effect, or a re- 
fori^^alor^' effect from the Inrtuences 
broURht to ben,r mi them, come btrck 
to prison so freiiuently that they 
.spend a longer .iRKregate time In prls-- 
oii than if lonsrcr sentences were In- 
fli.lfil ill the lU-st instance. 

No less than 10 per cent, of the to- 
tal number of convicted prhsoners are 
c^i)mT■nitfBd-iTOaeT• sentences of fotu- 
days or less. .li_ would apv)ear to he

Rival Irish Organizations. 
, Mr. William O'Brien has just written 
another ll\H4.y letter on the ".Vll-for- 
Ireland" movement in which lie says 
that it is the only ll-ve thingf in Irish 
politics. He declares: The .United 
frlsh ...league' Is scarcely a rival any 
irmger. It is slowly but surely fll<k- 
ering out of pxist<»nee. It is being 
done to death by the secret "Board "f 
Erin" (colloquially known as the 
•'.Mollv Magulres") ■ even rpore effec- 
tive! v than by the new movement: 

Tlie "Board of Krirt" has captured 
a majority of the governing council of 
the United Irish league— the "Standing 
Committee"— and Is consefjuently in 
-complete control of its funds and of 
the '•(jonventions.'^-wWeh manipulate

country council 'elections. Thp public 
organ isation la d.idn s-me4v-by Inch un-

resp^mslble caueus. The "Board of 
Erin" keeps up sonrje fecWe fiction of 
being a benefit soviety as an excuse 
for its existence. Its re?ii business In

parliament and mHvors and the dis- 
tribution of official patronage' arnoug

to old-fashlon«;d nationalists and 
would make It an Insurmountable bar 
to Hom« Rule. If it were to prevail Is 
that. by. its Initial rule, all persons 
who are not Catholics, are dlsqualltled 
for membership of the order. Hence 
one of the tirst tibjects of the All-frrr- 
Ireiand league Is to dlslod|;e the "Molly 
Magulres" from the cohtro! of the 
national movement, and restore that 
tequalitv and frhteinlty: of Irishmen of 
all Irish patriots of note for the past 
century and a half. . '. ', 

The vital prlncipTdiOf the All-for- 
freland league is the pffacement of all 
the old racial and .religious feuds, and 
the provision of equfll opportunities 
for Irish Catholics and Protestants-— 
be they of Milesian, English or Scot- 
tish blood-^to share the government of 
the country imder the Infhiencc of a 
common patriotism, and with a com- 
ninn feeling of perfect friendliness for 
the people of Great Britlan. 

The next great aim of the All-for- 
Ireland league la to complete the his- 
toric land settlement of li)03. esteem- 
ing the agrarian rflfflculty to bo the 
onlv one Which prevents tl^e Pro- 
tesatnt minority from agreeln gto nn 
equally satisfactory settlement of the 
Home Rule. The Purchase Act of 1003 
was the ©f a joint agreement 
'between the representatives of the 
landlords and the ttmants sitting In 
conference."!. «., four reprBsentatlves 
on each side. Both British parties and 
both houses of parliament coincided 
In the settiemfcot thus arrived at by 
Irishmen's own, good sense and patriot- 
ism. In the. spirit of the conference 'of 
Lies half the entire agricultural area 
of Ireland was transferred from the 
landlords tO the occupiers within five 
vear.s. The whole operation might have 
been completed by this tlmr-, only for 
the revolt, of .Messrs. Dillon and Lex- 
ton, who unluckily (but assuredly 
through no fault of mine) were not

that In this, enlightened age conditions

consideration for the employee. Instead 
of the life-destroying grtnci, are com- i 
ing' to be exercised more and more. 
Conditlunri are still far from ideal, hut 
the fact that a man of his position 
should say that these <>ondltions ought 
not to be tolerated simply shows that 
human beings who labor and toll -are 
at lajst demanding the rights that are 
due them. "

The Powers and Business of CcMadian Banks 


f By John Edouard) 

( )tic of the iViost popular topics of serious 
conversalion iu ihc West today is the banking 
system of.^ Canada. iMaiiy peoi)le in British 
Columbia are,.of the opinion that this province 
js siifferinjjf throuj^h the jiolicy adopted by the 
Canadian hanks in certain particulars, and 
perhaps they are riglU. It i> not the I'bjeci, 
hi)\vevor, (if this article, to iK-al with that 
phase nf the question. Init rather to ^dxc a 
rout,di suHiniary of the workings ^l a l)ank 
under the Canadian baid<inpf laws. 

Hanking in Canada i> done npi'ii the plan 
common])- called the l)rancl*^:)ank system, in- 
stalled on the theury that, h:i\Mng rtie rea<i\

the bank- pie i-usly, organized, as- their chart- 
( r- expired, have licen rencvveddjy the Difmin- 
ion go\eniment. The only Canadian bank., now 
existing whieii !- not wholly subject to the 
Hank Act is the Bank of North Amef- 
ica. incorporated by r(>yal charter, with its 
head office in London, and having a corporate 
existence . independent of the Act. The sec- 
tions which do not apjpty to that b attel^ are spe- 
cilied in the Act. "'!<.. , ■ . .■

which m the ordinary course o£ its'ness 
recei\ cs- .uuiucA:._i.vhicli it repays by honoring 
the chefiiH - of the pdrsptis from or'Oti whose 
account it receives the nioney, and a 'customer'

use ill their business or .sign the words "bank," 
"bankiji.g company," "banicing house," "bank- 
ing institution" or similar phirase's. They are 
also gr0hlbite«| ffom Hsing paper currency. 

The orgaiiizatitMi of a bank in Canada- is 
not complicated or difficult, provided you have 
sufficient money ox can raise it. Those who 
intend forming such ah institution first elect 
l>rovisional directors (not Ipss than fivt- or 
mere than ten) to look after the opening of 
st(,>ck books, and the Obtaining of subscriptions 
and payments thereon sufficient to comply 

with the act, which requires that the sub.scrip- 
tion must amount to at least ^500,000, with tSif 
less than .$-250,000 paid "tip land handed over to 
the Minister of JMnance. . As soon as this has 
becit donerEhe"provisional directors call a mcet- 

, ing of the f;tock stibscribcrs to elect directors 
for the ensuing year, and the functions of the 
provisional directors then cease, as they arc 
merely the active organi'7'erB of the cprporation. 
Within a year following tiie batik mnst. apply 
to the Trcasiiry .Boafrd of the Dominion for a 
certificate to do busineS.s, The charters of 
Canadian banks all expire at the same time, no 
niHttcr when the bank was formed, and they 
must be renewed every ten years, the' -next re- 
newal taking idace in 19,11.

The greatest jjiofii m bankings comes 
through the lending of iii' uiey in thelTorrrTof al- 
lowiiig overdrafts on enrrent accounts and in 
(riSGouhtlng bills and notes. The money wdiich 
a bank has available for this lending is made , 
up of th^cash paitl up on subscribed shares 
and the borroweil cai)iial made up of the notes 
in circulation, the dei)Osits of customers, aiid 
the money received f<->r draits, letters of credit, 
etc., which are to be paid at a-ftiture time. Thus 
the difference between tlic amount a bank 
earns on its capital, its exchange and collection 
charges, charges for keeping 'accounts ami for 
acting as depositary of valuables ; and the 
amount it pays to its depositors, expenses of 
=Ehe-bank and deductions for bad. debts, form its 
profifs^out of which to pay diydends and 
bonuses and crea tera rest or r eserve . fund for _" 
contingencies. "^ ^^ 

The interest which a bank may stipulate for' 
is limited i5y~the Act to 7% per annum. .-M- 
ways looking for profits, the banks soon found 
l;haFtTrcre"'was ho""Ta\v~ in" fo^rlTeTOtdFrTng^thcm' " 
liable to "incur any penalty or forfeiture for 
usury, and that they could therefore, notwith- 
standing the Act, stiplUlate fot any rate of in- 
terest or discount they chose without invalidat-' 
ing the contract of Ipan or pledge. The only 

compel his bank to sue for interest, such bank 
cannot recover tnorc than 7%,' and even when 
the bank retains or debits his account with in- 
terest in excess of 7%, he is entitled to recover,, 
the excess 'so long as it was not paid voluntarily 
by him. ' . 

In addition to discount a bank may retain 
the following collection or agency charge.^ on 
negotiable paper to run , 

(a) .for less than thirty elays, one-eighth of 
one per centum ; - ' ' . . 

■ , lb) for thirty days or oyer but less than 
-ixiy days. one-f,ourth-<ff orve per centum: 

tc, ) for sixty days or over but less than 
ninety 'days, three-eighths of one per centuri ; 
and ■ --- 

(d I for ninety days or o\-er. one-half e>f one 
per centum. • 

A bank is not entitled to. charge any dis- 
connt or con»mission^ for ca.shing an o.fficial

its departments, whether d,raw,n on the bank

.\ feature of banking not generally knn\\-n 
to the, public is the,, double liability., of bank 
sh.-ireholdcrs. When a man l^ays up a share in 
an ordinarly 'limited comiiaii\ bis lialyilitv 
ceases, and shpuhl tile company fad the credit- 
ors cannot call ni)on his'.pri\ate funds for the 
paymenf of its (lebt-s, 'H'he law ;^o\crniiig bank-- 
ing is different. In the cvciu i>f-i,iie iir-operlv; 
and assets of a bank being insnffieieiii to ]ia\ 
its debts and liabilities eadi shareholder of 
the bank is liable per.-'on;dl\ fur the- di-fu iency

in this momentous reshaping of the economic

Whether we like it or riot, we are entering upun

stood at the head of a great revolution whose 
temper was so anti-rcvohitionary. In his 
earlier days the bishops had TDeefTforcitd to-re=- 
buke him for the narrowness and intolerance 
of"' his Churchmanship. "WhUn Whitfield be- 
gan his sermons in tire fields, Wesley 'could • 
not at first reconcile himself to that strange 
way.' He condemned and fought against the 
admiission of laymen as preachers til l he found- 
himself left with v none but laymen to preach. 
To the last he clung pas«ionatel.y to the Church 
of England, and looked on the body he had 
formed-^s but a lay society in full communion 
with it. He broke with the Moravians, who 
had been the earliest friends of the new moVe-.

by their contempt of religious forms. He 
broke with Whitfield when the great preachifer 
plunged in\o an extravagant Calvapii^nr. But 
the same practical temper of mind which Icfl . 
him to reject what was unmeasured, and to be 
the last l^o adopt what was new, enabled him 
at once to grasp and organize the novelties he 
adopted. .-He became himself the most un- 
wearied of field preachers, and his journal for 
half a century is little .more than a record of 
fresh journeys and fresh sermons. When once

he made their work a new and attractive tea-'

treated as biennials, are the golden and Rocky 
Mountain columbines, the chimney bellflovver, 
perennial larkspu?, the perennial gaillardias, 
the Iceland poppy and the snap-dragon. These 
all give their/best flowers when sown in Aug- 
ust, and the only winter protection they need is 
a covering of litter. (The last two, however, 

Sooner or later everybody w^nts to raise 

perennials from seed, because it is the cheapest 

way of stocking the garden with these nowers; 

VVhen you buy plants from a nurserynianyoTi 

pay fif-teen cents or more for each little plant, 

while a packet , of seed from' which you can will give a good crop of flowers the satjie year 

raise a hundred plants may <i'6st five or ten if sown outdoors in spring.) Everybody ought 

to have a seedbed and sevy these' favorites every 
•year, for they are at their best only during the 
firjit season. 

"4. There is no point in a beginner's raising 
from seed species that have dozens of im- 
proved varieties, as the seedlings are almost 
sure to be inferior. The only way to perpetu- 
ate these varieties is by dividing the plants. To 
this class belong perennial chrysanthemum, 
Japanese iris, phlox and peony. The excep- 
tions are hollyhocks and larkspur, which are 
healthier from seed arid therefore more^atis- " 
factory, even if the forms and colors are not .4o 
iiear perfection. 

5. Seed is rarely, if ever, offered of the fol- 
lowing: Bleeding'heart. lily-of-the-valley, day 
lilies (Funkia and Hemerocallis), German iris, 
bergamot or Oswego tea, and moss pin'k (Phlo.v 
subulata). ' However, these plants arc easily 
propagated by division and ever-vboily has 
them, .so that' it will not be asking anv great 
.favor. of your friends if you copy this list and 
in(.|uire' whether they have any to spare, 
"^6. The following sow themselves when once 
established, and if your friends have them at 
all, tll»ey will have plenty of seedlings to spare: 
Forget-me-nots, violets,. Sweet. William, the 
common Columbine and the yellow alvs.sum. 
'"""yr'Dffiers' which are easily obtained from 
friends.-because they spread rapidly from the 

cents only. There is some difference between 
having a hundred larkspurs for $25 and a hun- 
dred larkspurs for twenty-five cents! 
/' August is the best month in the year, for 
sowihg seeds of hardy perennial flowers, be- 
'cau^e the seeds that you get then are fresher 
and will therefore germinate more quickly. The 
seeds that you buy in spring arc last year's 
crop, but by the 1st of August you can get this 
year's seeds of nearly alMhe favorite peren- 

Jaials. ,., 

Peony seeds if --own in .spring will lie dor- 
mant a year or even two years. The same is 
true of Primula Japonicn. Many others will 
never germinate at all. The only perennials 1 
know that do better in spring are given in. a 
short list toward the end of this article. 

The old notion that it takes more time and 

^.care to raise pei-emiials from seed than it does 
annuals, contains "a nine per cent alloy of 
truth."' Young perennials grow more slowly, 
and iherefore it is usually convenient to trans- 
plant them Iwice liei'ore ihey are put into their 
l)crnianenl cjuariers, whereas annuals can often 
l)e merely broadcasted and thinned. In either 
case, however, there are^phly two months in 
which it is necessary to give (<ose attention to 
small plants, for May-sown a"tlualJ^^wd^)Jm^^

you are raising perennials in a small out-of-the-

8. Abottt the only jpopul^r perennials that 
cannot be sown in August and-wintered safely 
outdoors arc< the Japanese anemone, hoMy- 
TTock.Ccotch pinks (unless wintered in raised, 
beds), clove pinks or Marguerite carnatioriSj_, 
and possibly the Chinese''rante rn plant (Phy sa- 
Ijs Francheti). These need to be started in the- 
spring in order to get a full crdp of flowers the 
next year, and they should be transplanted to 
their permanent quarters before September 20. 
You can find a long list of pererinials for. 

Dutch tiiilbs (tulip, crocus, narcissus arid 
hyacinth), that J:)loom outdoors year after

the best results. August, k. J he time to„d.a.Jt,.._.

more than a loot deep. Set the bulbs about 
six inches apart, and deep enough so that there 
will be foil! iiuhes or more of soil above- the

help the drainage. The largest and heaviest^'

,The best combina'tTon is leaf mpld, turfy loam 
and well-decayed cow manure, an equal 
amount of each, with enough sand to make 
the mixture porous. Use pots of five inches or 
of smaller size, set the bulbs close and let their 

there are conditions by wdiich self-fertilization 
is entirely impossible, and no seed nor fruit 
would be' produced were it not for the agency 

-jof such, insects as the bees. Thus, even if a 
person be not a bee-keeper, it becomes quite 
important for him as a fruit-grower to pre- 
serve the bees that are flying about the blos- 
soms of the fruit trees, and av,pid any action 
that might ilestroy them. 

The third reason for not spraying while in, 
bloom is that there is no pest for wdiich to 
spray at this particular time. It is too early 
to s])ray for the codling moth or curculio, and 
there will be no decidedly beneficial results 
to come from spraying at such time. It is by 
all means best to wait until just after the petals 
or showy parts of the flower drop, and then 
sj^ray with the Bordeaux mixture, to which is 
added paris green or arsenitc of lead. The 
I'ordeaux- mixture is made by dissolving four 
|,ot,mds of bluesjonje or sulphate of copper in 
fifty gallons of water, and adding six ixmnds 
of lime, slaked, and made into a milk of lime 
and strained. To this fifty gallons of the l^>r- 
deaux mixture add either one-third pound 01 
paris green or two ])ouhds of arsenate of lead. 
Spray well over the tree- ju^t after the blos- 
soms' fall, and you will kdl the codling moth,

berry grower, for, there are two. things to be 
done; first, giving the necessary attention to 
beds that were set this spring, so that they will

beds from pot-grown runners. If you intend

The Economy of a Coldframe 
While it cost,s nothing at all to make a lit- 
tle outdoor seedbed -for perennials, and many 
people raise them in a moist, shaded spot. I 
would strongly urge you to have a coldframt? 
because it u ill enable you t f\, raise, aJargex per-

Sow the seeds in rows four inches apart. 
W'ater ahd cover with a sash which has been 
whitewashed. Instead of placing the sashes di- 
rectly* on the frame,, prop them iip with some 
short pieces of wood; 4-inch blocks are v6ry 
handy for this. ■ ' 

About a week after the seedlings show 
above the groundi remove the .sash and in its 
place put a lath screen. This will give the seed- ■ 
lings sufficient protection while allowing them 
to become hardened to the sunlight. In another 
week's time remove the lath, screen.

as soon >as they develop their- first or second

apart each way. Here they will make thrifty 
little plants that will pass the winter in the 
coldframe with a minimum of care ' and loss^ 
and will be in the best condition for planting 
out next spring. If there js no room in the 
frame the young plants may he .set outdoors, at 
this time to pass the winter. In either case, 
cov^r them with good leaves or litter t5 pre-

'i'he cheapest way to shade an outdoor seed-

of it one foot longer than the seed rtows so that 
it will hang over the south side of the bed far

cent of the amateur gardeners of America do 
all their garden w'j?»rk themselves, or, at thtf 
most, have a. man-of -all-work instead of a prO;* 
fessional gardener. Thi,|s man \s usually not

and consequently anyone who does not want 
the bother and expense of filling the numerous

If a careful observefwiir go about the 
connlrv with his eye.s open for criticism he vvill 
find one general lanlt with the great majority 
of farmers. They are in a rut. They raise the 
same kind of cro'ps year in and year out in al- , 
most the same old way. They may rotate 
them from one field to another, but the. same 
things-are there just the sam&. 

Few have the courage to tackle .something 

new. If you will go into the *housies of these 
narrow-thinking farmers you will fnid that 
they live the same way they rtin their farms. 
Meals are alway.s the same and cooked in prac- 
tically the same old-wxiy>—JLt is hard to get a- 
new idea into the head of a man who is satis- 
fied with the way his father farmed. 

The mahi reason that many farmers don't 
raise sjieep is because they don't know sheep 
and never having been raised with them feel 
that they are tackling a difficult problem. As a 
matter C)f fact sheep are the easiest animals to 
grow on the farm, and it has been demonstrat- 
ed time vvithout number that they make more 
profit than anything else a farmer can raise. 

If you don't know, sheep the sooner you 
_ \ inted with them the better. No farm 
of eighty" acres or more should be without a 
flock a'nd the larger the farm the more sheep 
should be produced. They keep "the weeds 
down and arfe but little care. 

There is room enough for many more thou- 
sands of sheep <S& the farms in the Central 
States, and it these farmers who raise exclu- 
sively hogs and hom-i^vy-sha»ld adopt the sheep 
habit they would be better off financially and 
otherwise. Sheep grow into money very fast 
and are an aftractiv'e feature to every farm.-—

Another advantage claimed for the grow- 
ing oats is that the crop uses up the /oil mdis- 
ture and thus hastens the strawberry plant to 
ripen up, so that '^ it goes, into winter quarters 
in better condition, than those .plants which r«-- 
ceive their first check from the elements. 

The.oatcstraw^ being soft, offers but slight 
hindrance to the re-awakened plants in spring. 
It is well7however, to go down the rows occa- 
sionally with a hay fork and part the straw in 
places yvhere. it may have fallen too thickly, 
which is indicated by the bulging up where the 
yOung plants are pushing through. 

No cultivation should be done next spring 
until after the crop has been harvested, and 
then only if the intention is to retain the bed

The one thing that every home gardene'r 
should remember to do in the' first vveek.,of bin usually forgets, is to plant_ihe late 
crop of celery for \yinter use. If possible, get 
for storing buIbs-;-one that is neither hot nor ■ the plants into the ground during the last days 
freezing cold. — L .\. M., in Garden Magazine, of July, but do it some time before Auglifit is 

far advanced. 


'.- Occasionally we hear-3pf-x>ersotts^s|>raying 
blossoms, and are surprised to know that, in 
this "time of advanced knowledge concerning 
"spraying and fruit growing, any person who 
owns only a single tree would be so blind to his 
own interest as to attempt to spr&y that tree 
while in bloom. The first and pri mary rea son 
for not spraying \vhile in bloom is that the 
spray liqiitd is quite liable to fall upon the very 
delicate and tender pistilr^* central part of the 
flower, ancl. destroy it. Thus it would kill the 
\ oung fruit, jus'tas wotild SeyeYe frost coming 
at the same time. 

If the person should 'anticipate a crop of 
fruit that would be entirely too heavy, and 
should desire to thin it, he might use' the spray 
piiinp to aid in .sodoing, but this'^ would be a 
v- ^irable and inadvisable method of at- 

tcJtipling to thin fruiti 

Mid reason for not spraying while 

chirpers will enjoy the exercise, and bath will 
more than repay you for your trouble. 

The very best kind of a pen for ducklings 
is one that can be easily moved from one part 
of 'the yard to" another. The stationary pen 
soon becomes infested vvith disease germs, and 
the easiest way to overcome these is ta move 
to other. quarters. '• ., 

Do not place a young brood of chicks in the 
quarters vacated by an earlier brood. There 
will bc' too many_impivrities-afld^inseGt-pests^ 
to insure good health for the young chicks. 
"The coop should be thoroughly. scrubed,. disin- 
fected and removed tg a place where there 
have been no chicks before the youngerbrood 
shoutd"occupy it. ' ' ■ 

Just because the pric,e of feed, is highs, do 
not yield to the temptation of .allowing the old- 
er chicks to g^t along without food. The older 
the. bird, the more feed it needs, and especially 
does it need feed when producing a heavy 
growth of feathers. It the bird is worth- keep- 
ing at all, it is worth keeping right. Any 
atterript to economize on feed will result in

the time the fall rains set in. For this reason 
it is charged to wet weather. The cause, how-

supply of late plants, no, matter, for they 'can

In large gardens, where there is plenty of 
room, the late celery crop has a space reserved 
for it ffoTn the first, the ground being cultivat- 
ed from time to time and kept free from weecis, 
but not put to any other crop. In small gardeus

Three lumdrcd aiul twenty aolr^;a(cs ate as 
sembled in the M£iro|^oHtan nMirchin tins city 
to conduct the' business' ol ITic' "T^TethovliM 
ChurcVi in Canada. It is a sort ot parhanient, 
and p/rhaps is oenerally characterized Uy nnne 
dignity, excepting in the opening and clo-mg 
ceremonies, than 'is that august Iwdy. 

This i.s the cightli General Confcreiuc oi 
tile Methodist Churcli. The first met in !\cllo- 
ville in 1H83. 

rr(^vious to tliis ••ThcMclhoiHst Churcii ci 
Canada" had hcUi general gatherings, in Toron- 
to in 1874, Montreal 1878. Hamilton 1882. '1 he 
Belleville Conference included practically all 
the branches of Methodism in Canada 

In 1 88(1 the meeting place \va^ Tnn.nto;

Toronto; kkv' Winnipeg, especially marked by 
the inception oi ihe L'hurch Cnion movement, 
and the depariment oi temperance an<l moral 
reform; in 1906 Montreal, and for 1010 \ ic- 
toria was wiscK' selected a^^ the place of meet- 
ing- . 

It will thus be seen that ihc movements I'f 
the Church are taking on wider scope. All the 
Western meeting places have apparently had 
an influence in giving birth to nev and larger 
movements. Thi> was true in the history of 
the Methodist Church in the United States. It 
mav be found evci^ more so in Canada. 

A brui summary of the historical connec- 
tion between this -gathering and the past will 
be read with interest. Methodism owes its 
hi storical origin to a great spiritual awakening 
in the lives of lohn Wesley and .some others m 
London, l-iigland. about' 1738. These men 
x,,u-lit f. reform the Established Church of 
Lngland, but the disparity betwe en their views 
and those of others made a line of cleavage be- 
Uvecn them and the Church, wdiich' eventuated 
in ilic le^al establishment of another denomin- 
. atK-n, new known and respected the world over 
as the Methodist ^r Wcsleyan Church. ^ . 

The first Methodist Conference was held in

,.f \\ <^K\'- view- had provoked very bitter op- 
position, often expressing itself through rotten- 
eijgs. ckib's. stones and mobs. Those were 
strnui.Mi- lime-, and the prejudices of a gener- 
ally mismiormed or ignorant populace seeiii to 
have fa.-.tened on Wesley. He was acciiseTt-of 
bcin^ in league with Charles Stuart, the Pre- 
tender, of being a Papist, a Jesuit, a Quaker, a 
gin-seller: wa.s guilty of treason, was in prison 
getting- his deserts,' had hanjLed himself, and 
such like. The first conference grew from a 
desire for counsel and encouragement among a 
few like-minded men. Their deliberations 
lasted severHidav.s. The princi[)les laid down 
then for the guidance of individual members in 
assemblies is' vvorthy of perpetual remem- 
brance. "In speculative things each uan only 
submit -so far as his juclgment shalL be con- 
-___ vjnQodr '■" p^'P'^v p rac tical point, so 'far as we 
can without wounding our several consciences. 
They desired that everv per.son vSpeak . freely 
what was in his heart, and that every questtOrt , 
proposed mav be fully .debated and -bolted 
to the bran." A church founded by men of 
'that stamp of common sense certainly deserved 
try succeed, as it did, : ''So may the bright suc- 
cession tun !" .' • 

Two leading questions^ at the first Confer- 
ence were: What to teach? and what to do? 
Those who believe in evolution would find a 
forcible illustration-of "the hypothesis in the 
—development of Methodism. The question. 'Ts 
itTawfiirto'lJear arms?" was discussed and an- 
■ swered in the affirmative. The question of 
providihg a seminary for education of youth 
was considered. Stich_\vas the first Confer-

"Briefly, for her future guidance. I tell her 
these facts. She was born in London. Her 
mother died when Etta was Jwo years old. I 
was broken-hearted. The 'men of the cloth and 
the doctors said it was for the b'est — God's >vill 
be done. I said there was no^Godi We died 
like dogs. The theory of church religion was, 
to me. a matter of clever statesmancraft. It 
was designed to make nations whole, to keep 
them intact, -to keep the individnals from 
weakening the-nation by personal excesses. 

"If God there be, I said. He would instil' 
faith, without external aid, without the teaela- 
ing of men, without schools. 1 w0uld rear my 
daughter that way. I would tak^e her away 
from the follies of her kind, away from the iii'<| 
sane garb of 'her kind, away fforn the frip- 
peries and gewgj^vs, the sharp-edged gossipl 
and cruelties of her sex. I would have her

would then be able to jtidge for liersel,f. .if

Stori; From the Mountains 

F ar up i n the Swiss moviiJtaihsi, even above 
the spots w^hither the cattle are. driyen for their 
winter pastu rage, thc , active, hardy goat 
climbs the tocks; and the chamois, lighf~of toot 
as rhf ^w;.sing breeze, Springs from point to 
point with wonderful swiftness and grace. 
, The leaps which the chaniojs can take are 
amazing in extent,, and it will stand with -alt 
four feet crowded upon a tiny space no- larger 
than a tea-plate,, with, the sheer dcptlis of the 
"^irecipice descending '^oVi everj^ side. Bi?si"tles 
the goats and the chamois, there arc birds, 
notably the mountain vulture, a )arge and pow-. 
erful bird of prey, of a fielrcc' and rapacious na- 
ture. This bird has been known to be danger- 
ous, not only to animals, but to human beings..- 

The story is told of two peasants — a hus- 
band.and wife — wdio work on their lit- 
■ tie pot. or clearing, of land, high up the moun- 
tain side. They had with l;h,em their only child, 
a baby girl, between two and three years of 
age, named .Anna. The little one played about 
while her parents worked, and presently,, wear- 
ied with her sport, she lay down to sleep in a 
corner of the field. 

Father and mother watched her tenderly 
tin .she had dropped into a s ound sh im her, then , 
they covered her oyer an<l Went <!TT^ with their 
toij in a di.-^tant part of the gi"0und. ■• %_ 

When, toward- evening, "the mother reffifh-~ 
ed for he^r infant.' the baby was no.vvhere to be - 
seen. The manner of her disappearance was a 
mystery, untilthq cries of a huge vulture cir- 
cling' overhead, warned the, distracted parents 
that a bird so powerful as to be able to carry 
off a lamb, or a half-igrown kid, might easily 
have taken their child. , " 

■ Full of fear.^. they scaled the mountain, and 
, for a long while searche(;l without success. 
Their distress may be imagined as they 
thought of their little one, and of the fate which 
might already have overtaken, her. Pcrhai)s 
she. had fallen from the vulttire.'s rude nest, of 
rough branches and.t'wigs, built, a.s it probably 
would be, upon some dangerous ledge of rock. 
Perhaps she had been devoured by the J'oung 
birds of prey. They <lared not dwell uoon such 
'thoughts, but pressed on, calling their darling 
by ilame. At length a faint cry, waa-4HSBtIr^ 
and, rushbig forward, the father discovered his ■ 
rnfa'ni.__4aughter lying V)n ' the very edge of a 
precipice, from which, in a little while, she 
must have rolled into the depths beneath. 

Either weary of its burden, or from .some 
other' cause, the vultut:e must have laid the 
child down in this .jjiirilous' place. Though 
cold, aiui half dead will) terron she was unhurt, 
and wis so<^h no woififijor the adventure. SlTS~~ 
lived to grow up and iteil the talc; but after- 
wa,rds she was called Gcie.rrAhna,.geier b«ing 
the, word which meant ''yultare" in her Mfive 
tongue. / "'" '' "-' -* '

Sunday, August 21, 1910. 

Canada is only beginning to appreciate fully 
the necessity of taking care of the vast heritage 
of natural wealth vouchsafed her of God. But 
the awakening has come, and the. result is that 
the (jucstion oi ihc conservation of natural re- 
.^ources whicli has caused so much hea:ted 
discussion among our neighbors to the south is 
t(^ he a leading question in this country. In 
, \ic\v'of this the excellent paper given by Mr. 
James White, secretary of the National Can- 
adian Conservation Commission, at the irriga- 
tion convention recently held at Kamloops, 
should prove of exceptional interest. This' pa- 
per will be published complete in the Colonist 
Sunday Magazine, the initial instalment ap- 
pearing herewith : 

" In 1903, l~'resi(lcnt Roosevelt, addressing the 
Society of American Foresters, urged strongly 
the necessity of conserving the forests to main- 
tain the stream flow for irrigation; for water- 
power; to prevent great floods and" for the 
mai^ntenance of the lumber industry. In 
1907. when appointing the Inland Water- 
ways Commission, he declared- that it 
was not posMli'u' in frame a compre- 
hensive plan ft r the conservation of the( 
streams "without taking account of the orderly 
development of" other natural rc.sinirccs." 
Later, on the recommendation of the Commis- 
sion, the President called a conference of the 
Governors of the States of the Union and n\ ex- 
perts on the conservation of natural resources. 
Thi"; rec-'nimendatinn t(-> the President contains 
a i;"ii!'li- -latement ■ '^pi '-ting the urgency and 
^hecessity of conservation that deserves to be 
fjunied in full : 

' I Mtherto our national policy 1kl>; been (mc 
of alni'-! unrestricted di.sposal I'f natural re- 
sou re (--, !' '' ''li- is in more lavish nteasure 
than in ! lation in the world's history; . 

and this pi)l!( \ .>i ilie Federal Government has 
boon shared by ilie constitncrit Stales. Tliree 
coiisequences have ensut.''l : lMr>t, unprece- 
dented consumption of natural resources; sec- 

join together in conference on the/ inventory, 
conservation and wi<Ie utilization of world re- 

As a result, the Gevernnient of Canada es-, 
tablished a Conimi.ssi.on of Conservation con- 
sisting of 20 members appointed by order-in- 
council, of whom at least one must be a mem- 
ber of the faculty of a university within that 
province, if there be such university, a'ndof 
12 ex-officio members, consisting of the Min- 
isters of Agriculture, Interior and Mines, and 
the member of each provincial government 
who is chat'ged with the administration of the 
natural resources of such province. No Com- 
missioner can receive any fee or emolutnents. 

value as a partial measure of our ignpratice_a§ 
well as of our knowledge. 

Mineral wealth requires special considera- 
tion, inasmuch a.s it cantj.ot be replaced. 
Streams flow as long as rain falls; crops can 
be raised indefinitely if certain constituents arc 
replaced ; the forest primeval can be suc(;'cede(l 
by another, but the mineral deposits tha,t have 
been forming through untold ages, once mined, 
can never be replaced. It is, therefore, incum- 
bent upon us to so develop them that posterity 
will bless and not curse its. 

The products of our mines last year were 
valued at $90,500,000, comparatively insignili-

"losses in mining coal, the methods ol pxeven- 

lion or amelioration :

2. V\)\n:r seams should be mined first to 
avoid their total loss by falling of roof. 

3. Coal of low' grade and from thin seams

4. The slack coal shoidd be briquetted. 

5. In the manufacture of coke, by-product 
ovens that will save. the gas, tar, ammonia, etc.. 
should be used. One of the largest items of 
expensein briquetting is the binder. The coal-

tha; a large part of our available public lands 
have passed into great estates or corporate in- 
terests, our forests are so far depleted as to 
multiply the cost of. forest products, and pur 
. suj)pj.i„es of coa,l and iron ore are so far reduced 
as to enhance prices ; and third, unequalled op- 
pottunity for private monopoly to the extent 
that both the Federal arid State sovereignties 
have been compelled to enact laws for the pro- 
tection of the people.'*"' 

The conference was held at, Washington 
May 13-15, 1908, and resulted in the estaBlish- 
ment of a National Conservation Comrnission 
and of 37 State Conservation Commissions. As 
an outgrowth of the joint conservation confer- 
ence in December, 1908. President Roosevelt 
invited Canada, Newfoundland and Mexico to 
join wi th. the^ Un .i te d3tates^ia a North. Ameri^ -^ 
can Conservation Conference. This invitation 
was accepted and. in th,e fol lowing February, 
the Commissioners met at Washington. Can- 
ada being represented bv Hon. Sydney Fisher, 
Hon. Clifford Sifton and Dr. Beland. M. P; 

The conference formulated a' Declaration of 
Principles which, in brief, declared: that : "The 
prosperity of each of the nations of this con- 
tinent is dependent upon the conservation of its 
natural resources; ■ that current measures 
should, be taken to conserve them and to a,scer- 
tain their location and extent. 

"That they shoiild be developed, used and 
"conserved so as to obtain the maximum of ben- 
efit for ourselves and for pjosterity. 

"That all re.sults should be communicated 
by each Commission to ^the other. 

"That tfieTJPxesident invite all nations to 

In the Cobalt mines, wdien first opened, the 
low grade ore was thrown on the dump with 
the rock and waste. Many of these mines arc 
either recovering this ore thems<;lves, or have 
sold the "dumps"" to other operators, who will 
do so. .Ml this re-handling represent:_s a jA^aste 
and, in addition, when mined, .silver sold at a 
much higher figure than it dues today. The 
tailings from the 240,000 tons milled this year 
will carry nearly ij/i million ounces silver. By 
the end of njio there will be upwards of 2,200,- 
000 ounces in the (lumps worth, at pn riu 
|)rices, nearly i >4 million dollars. , . 

More important than waste of imiterials is 
the loss of human life in our injpng opera- 
tions. In 1909 the death raie Ciijf c men em- 
T)Ioyed;jiii.deTgrpnTtd iw the prochicing mines cf 
the Cobalt Vl is trier was ""TT-p-cr^o, as com-

and below ground in English nictalifei-ous 

While conceding that the needs of the pres-' 
eTTt-;;g^eTieration -should not be cuTtaile d -, 'that 
tTiey'can and should use efficiently all of our 
.c&Qjjrces that they require and that they shoulil 
not be forced to mine unprofitably, there arc 
some basic- principles of conservation that 
should be enforced, viz.: 

T. That we. of today, are holding these re- 
sources in tru.'^l fo! our children and for many~ 
genera tions, 

2.,:.That coal land- -iiould be leased for a 
sufficient length of time and at a rat-e4©w 
enough to ensure a fair profit to the operator. 

3. Wherever possible.^watlTr power should 
be substituted for power gcncrateC^ the con- 
sumption of fuel. ■

In dealing with the natural resources of half 
a continent largely undeveloped and a large 
portion of which is absolutely unexplored, the 
student can be pardpned if.his feeling, on con- 
teriiplating the enormous field for investiga- 
tion, is otic of dismay.' While much has becin 
done, it is .insignificant compared to what re- 
mains to be. done. The mere collection and 
i;ol lation of all available information will be of 
great value and will form a basis upoti which 
we can build the new material and will have a 

with the production of^$i4,j6o,ooo in 1889 and 
of $49,234,005 in 1899. " ■: ^ ^ ^ 

In 1909. we produced 11^ of the World's 
production of silver, 70% of the asbestos, and 
63% of the nickel— the three minerals in which 
we make the best showing. 

The coal resources*' of Canada have been 
roughly esti^patcd at iSoVi billioii tons, of 
which 6J4 billion tons are credited to Nova 
Scotia a,nd New Brunswick, and 144 billion 
tons to the prairie provinces and British Co- 
lumbia, - 
' It is estimated that, u^ to the present tijne, 
one ton of coal has-been waited fpr-evcty one 
mined. Until within the last ten years ij^ 
tons of anthracite was wasted for every ton 
mirie'd, and even today' one. ton is wasted for 
every ton and a half mined. - 

6.'- A very serious wasle is due to the use of 
the •'■lx)rd.-and-piUar" system,. Where 15% to 
30% of the coal is lost, as compared with about 
6% when mining longwalL . \ 

It should also be borne in rnind that long 
before the coal Supplies ate; exhausted ihcie 
will , be a gradual decline, owing to iiicrtasetl 
c'""St. and ftcaf city. The rccer^t advances m i1h>

It should also be borne in miiul that long

6. Exi>losions in coal mines are due either 
tp gas or dust. Good ventilation will prevent 
the fornier and dust can be kept down eitherby 
daily spraying with water or by sprinkling

inoisture, every three months. 

7. Under favorable circunistances. siilphur-' 
ic acid can be profitably recovered from the 
waste gases of furnaces smelting sulphureous 
Ores ; thus the Tennessee Copper Co. is recov- 
ering it and utilizing it in the manufacture of 
super-phosphate. Iti Great Britain legislation 
forced the smelters to treat their furnace gases 
and, in some instances,, the by-products showr 
ed eventually a greater profit than the mineral 
recovered. This result Avas achieved in the 

'face of the most bitter opposition on the part of 
those , who, ultimately, received most benefit 
fronHttr Ten years ago any one visiting the 
Copper Cliff Smelter near "STidbury; Qnt., 
would, und^ certain weather conditions, find 
the atmospher e as near a production of Hades 
as is passible on earth. Today, by the elimina- 
li on of 'rnost of the heap roasting; conditions 
are excellent arid the mineral is recovered at a 
much lower cost. 

Experience teaches that nothing that con- 
tains ' material of value should b,e ihniwn 
away as worthless. In the copper mines n\- 
.Arizona all the old_iiiUng in the slopes and the 
slags have been rertrcated,, involving a double 

.waste of fuel and double wa.><te of Irfbor'. '\r 
hundreds of mines in North America gpld-^tail- 
ings running several dollars to the ton have, 
been washed into the streams and' lost forevCr. 

• they been impounded, they could nOw be. 
cyanided arid practically all tlioir content*; rr- 
Covered. Hundreds of thousaiuU I't d >llars 
worth of copper have been recovered from the 
mine watj^rs of the Butte mines. .'.

\M, read the stoi'y as' told 'by thr Crimo-s. or 
read it as told by Mr. Meredith, you have in 
either case a wonderfully fascinating narrative. 

She married Yanko partly out of jiity, part- 
ly .to..,jescape her parents, who liad ccTtainly 
behaved aboiTiinably. Her union' with Yanko 
Rarowitza lasted, however, only five months. 
Then we hnrl the record r.f a pseudo-marriage 

with, orie Friedniann. which after five years 
turned out to be no legal marriage at all, and 
was dissolved by mutual consent. 

Then came her mcetinp •' Serge Shev- 
itch' and their marriacre, wli i-ms to have 

been a happy uiu-m ■ years." 

Many years ot the t'nticess' lif( after the 
Lassalle catastrophe seem to li;u c hccn spent 
ip conilection with tlir -!ai;c, .md l''rau .Scliev- 
itchmust have clearly attained to very consid-. 
erable success as an actress. sa\< Mr Shorter. 
"How far this .was due U' !i< i ,i' - u lati'in with 
Lassalle It is impossible to say." < )f late years 
we are told, she has been under the intlucncc 
of the l'da\atsky movement. Nrr "Remin- 
iscences," besides dealing w-ith her one great 
romantic (■|)isodo, present the record iif her tra- 
vels in .America aiul Russia. an<l her life in

in his well-known novel:

1 tried at the time of writing the book 
to get a portrait of Lassalle,, and had so far to 
write in the dark. For this and corresponding 
reasons. I put a poor estimate on the book, 
although it' was done \v\\h hone<t endeavor to 
run with the facts.' ■ 4f 

"Mr Merediili waS wrong ill his niodesi 
estimate. The story he wrofee was a great one, 
although not of his greatest. Thirty years 
'have pas.sed and onee again Clotildc of 'The 
Tragic Comedians' relates her story, and rlc- 
fends herself. Ihit her best defense i.s to lie 
found in Mr! .Meredith's romance, where a 
great atialyst in unique prose, that makes her 

prose seem so bald and jejune, has shown how 
much might be forgiven to a girl of ^^ineteen 
summers, . 

"If we join isstre with Mr. Meredith— and 

who would dai-e to have done^so while the 
great man lived? — it is in the assumption that 
Lassalle was actually a comedian, tragic or 
otherwise: "He perishe.fl of hi.s weakness, but 
it was a sti-Png man that fell. If his end was 
unheroic the blot does not overshadow his 
life.. ., ..He v 1 ^ n-ither fool nor madman, nor 
man to be adored; hi:? last temptation caught 
him in the season before he-had subdued his 
blood, arid - ami ! ilic.mjiiltitudinarily simple of' 
this world stamped him a tragic cometlian.; 
that is, a, errand jirctender, a self-deceiver.'

-ary pack animal. '■' 

All Iceland saddle p.oTii.cs are pacers, and 
there is no occasic^n to rise in the stirrups when 
riding. The pack j)onics, on the other hand, are 
rrmgh .iiid , :. • .,■ paccr^aitdarc considered by 
the natives ti> 1)C worth only one-third as much 
as riding ponies. W'e were assured that our 
"hestur" \\ ere two ofi4ie4)cst riding ponies in 
the island, and after tvvb or three days' trial . 
were satisfied with and bought them for £i6' 
apiece, saddles and bridles thrown in, .'IJhey 
were sure-footed, cow-hocked little animals of 
1.^ hands, but with poor shoulders, rcquiriii^- 
cruppers {c> the saddles. We christened thetu 
'■.\nskaat " and "Anskllir,** two words, frc- 
(|ucntly made use of by Icelanders when in 
their enps, of which we did not then know the 
meaning. The pronunciation of the second 
name sliould present no difficulty to anyone 
who lias traveled much iti. North Wales, and 
ean pronounce the full name of the parish. An* 
glcscy ui=;ually called Llanfair P.G. 

Of course, we haid the usual untoward in- 
cidents with our IittIe_beaslSL,_aud„.vvere;iiX)m— 
imic tn time tempted to try and do belter ;, as,, 
im example, when.on-the morning of ouf ^tatt- ' 
ing from Christophersfen'.s farm for oiir fishing 
camp on the Storri Borg river, Au^skaat object- 
ed \>< the rattle of /lirtr'tfw 'cAoping Utensils

the ditch in all directions, while Au.skaat "lay 
doubled up below.'' Beyond a large breach in 
1 he Tun \vall no damage Vesultcd. ' 

One of these mi-)ments of temptation was at 
the annual Storri Borg pony fair, to which all 
the farmers of the di.strict bring llicir ponies— 
mostly two or three year okls-r-in order that 
the dealer's agent may chadse beasts, for ship- 
' ment to Scotland, where tlicy are put to , work 
in the coal miiics. There, wa,s a big crowil of 
men anrl a bigger crowd of,, ponies, none"' of 
which had cytfr been handled,, all- being as wild 
as hawks. Some of the colts fought like dc- 
ilions, rearing aind striking with their forelegs. ' 
biting and kickiner, but. having no shoes on. did 
little <lamagc. The men ha«l tin task in 
bringing upa youngster for the agcnt'tO;«xam- 
inc. and. when one was; finally chosen, the deal 
came to a conclusion by the men having to 
carry hitn botlily.put of the herd. To this they 
were evidently well acctistomed. and ncAcr 
failed to cut and carry out the most unruly 
colt. Prices ranged from £2 to £3 Vjos., (*r 
thereabouts ami after the bargaiti w'as struck, 
the pony was marked by clipping a strip of 
hair acrciss, his shoulder wjth a pair of .scissors. 
The horse: fair; la.sts several «lays, and the

The harlequin duck, \vhicli, is in E,uropc ex- 
clusively confined to Iceland, and lirecds there, 
as well as in Grecniaiid and m tlie northern 
parts of N'orth America. 'Hie fully gnjwn 
males (called in A-nicrica"6id^ lords") arc ex- 
tremely handsome birds, with pltimagc of 
spots, stripes lind band.>* in true harlequin fash- 
ion. The fi?males (called "jermics") are of a 
sober brown color all over, without any of the 
varieg,atcd^ coloring of t he "old lo rd.'^ Richard- 
son V skua, or the Arctic skua : Tlie a<lult bird 
is sooty black, but frequently some are seen 
with wiiite breasts. J shot one of each kind. It 
is ,111 inveterate ix)ach'er. devours ' eggs and

ed divers or loorts on a small lake, but as they 
kept lo the' middle of the water out of ran;ije 
and refu.sed to be driven we were able to, get a 
specimen only by hiding' ourselves and making 
our small spaniel trot up and dens n the shore 
of the lake until the natural curio.<iity of t^ 
loons brought them within .shot. The great 
northern diver breeds in rcclaiid, and we saw a

1 had three mail routes froni the govern 
ment and decided to run the easiest one myself. 
I''n)nr Teller to Igloo. ('>o niiles. and return, run- 
ning time not to exceed t.Wo days, each way, 
w.ns the. schedule. I decided toiisc reindeer 
instead of dogs ; to give them a trial, for they; 
had Jievcr before, been used for this 
Securing two splendid aliimals from the Mis- 
sion, I would leave at 7 a.m., and the fleet- 
footed, high-spirited deer would carry me and 
the mail' through deep snovv, over lakes, dcso 
late tundra, storm-swept valleys, up the ice- 
l)ound rive.r and sloughs to Igloo befrjrc 8 p.m., 
covering tfle sixty miles in one -day. Then 1 
would stake them out on a hillside, where they 
would shovel the snow with ^hcir antlers. an<l 
paw the moss with their wide-spreading hooifs. 
feeding and rc-^ting all night, and in the morn- 
ing wc would race home again. 

Twenty- five miles of the way was ext'el lent 
hunting groniid ; rifk and shotgun lay always 
ready on the sleigh and I wojild iisuallx -et 
stifficient game to kee-p well supplied with 
meat. Thq reindeer are. fine to go hunting 
with : they will not disturb the game, can easily 
be turned aside and left feeding, while if you 
should coine along with .-v string of dogs aii'<l a 
flock of f>tarniigan should rise, dogs, sleigh

Probably the best known and 'most widely 
distributed of all the wild*gee,s< In Canada and 
the-: jiortht^ di!s?t34c^#f thi'. United ^tatj^ 
the so-called Canatla 'goose. /Tt is a very hand- 
some bird, and may be easily tlistinguished 
from other species »»f wild geese by its black 
neck an<l a white collar. Its arri\'al in the 
spring is welcomed, as it is a sUrc sigh that the 
long winter is nearly over. , Its loud "honk- 
ing" can be heard long before the V'-shapcd 
line is seen on the hori7.on, and the noise i* 
deafening as tlic-.fluCk passes overhead. ( 'tie 
bird leads the .way, and the pthens follow their 
leader. Their, breeding groun,d stretches 
north from Labrador and BritisJi Columbia, 
May and June are the nc:jting 1nonths,,.and si,x 
^KK'^ w-oiild be an, average number for a nest. 

The birds usiially come ■^<iu:'\ earls in ( »c 
tiiber. and hang about the ba\ s and creeks as 
long as they can find open water, waitinit;' Jiill 
the ice drivc.s them further south. Their win 
icr quarters are the bays and marshes t)'f the 
southern I'liited Slates.' It has even been stag- 
ed they fly south as far- as P'atagom'a. Proba 
biy this is afi exaggeration, though an i^olated 
case or two may ha\c occurred. On their long 
journeys -o many shots are fired at them that . 
tlie geese have learnt to exercise the greatest 
vigilance. For this reason they are verv diffi 
ciilt to approach. \]\ fact, it is almost impo- 
siblc to get .near them, aird the out way i- t" 
watch their coming and goin,- and t..i\liiM.i 
them a- they arc fHghting. 

■1 lappening to be in the Province Of Omiu e 
last anluiuu; 1 went to the Bay r.f Clialein. on 
the.' .A tjanfic seaboard, where" L,\vas lohl the 
Canada geiase usually came during < »eiol,er. 
They had arri\ed in large numbers and were 
swiinm ing about in one of the inlets of the ba\ . • 
but it was nnpossiblc to iiai near them, lo olV ■ 
serving their movements for' several .rla\s, 
liowe\er. I found that rcgulariy at high tide' 
they flew inland, t,«» a large lake.'the reason foi 
this being, no doubt, that they were driVeu off 
their feeding groun.d on the mini baiiks, 'an<1 
they nearly always si-enred to take the -;niie

Besides these geese, large flocks of black 
(luck sometimes flpw in fi-om the sea and 
gave very pretty sport. The black duck an<l 
the rediicati arc the two best duck.s in Cansida 
for eating, and they a'ffonltd a welcome addi- 
tion to our larder. .My best bag for one day , 
was six geese andag^Qd many duck.' I" had 
no scales with me. but am sure the weight c>f 
these geese averaged between I2lb. arid: i5ib. 
apiece. .Mthough I had the assistance, of .i 

m a n , . t h e 1 oa d seemed, a heavy one when rc- 
turning in the cvenhig to the farmhouse where 
f was stayjfig." "^ ' .^ —^-^xs — 

ftvery morning 1 was paddled round the 
shores of the lake. A canoe is much better fc)r 
this pu't'pi.isc than .a boat, ;i> yriu can glide 
along without the slightest noise and gct..right 
on to duck. There were a number of small 
islands, 'which enabled one to get shelter', au'l 
by crossing the inland to get wtdl within range 
before the l).i.rds realized the danger. _, 

Thf flight shooting jn-t befoic siindow n

woulfl now begin to come in from the sea, and .

to him. full of fanlt>. hot baths open the pores 
of the skin too nuieh, cold baths close them, 
carpets ai-d wnll papers are veritable breeding

forthwith we are inundated w-lth elaborate in: 
sliuctions for. attaining the ifjeal-^t-ate; — -t'-ir"-- 
doubted;iy sorrie of the theories of health i^e- 
formers are excellent. It is. perfectly true- that 
wc arc over civilized.. that our social environ- 
ment is too artificial, that we eat and drink too 
much, and that w'c are ,too greatly given to 
the acquirement of wealth, ease,, and luxury 
at the expense of our finer and rirtblet quali- 
ties: but whether the methods of reform arc 
going to place us on the right road to recovery 
is a cjuestion which is at least open to discus- , 
sion. Unfortunately so many of these advo- 
cates- of the "'simple life" make existence 
wcari,-on-c and burdensome. Every moment 
< f time which can be .spared from the ordinaij: 
business of life seem s to be given— -^not to re-

expand the nerve forces,, develop the muscles, 
increase the height, and generally promote a 
I.'topian physical and mental perfection. 

How piany bites one should take at an 
apple, how much mastication shotild be de-

stMT'.ing of which so much earnest thought and

What women are the happiest? Without

They have di.scovered this for themselves, and

that there arc ivt enough men to c;o renmd, and

The photograph above has the distinction 
of being a view of the Provincial Capitol sel- 
dom if ever seen reproduced. It was taken re- 
cently by Shaw Bros, of Victoria, and shows 
the magnificent parliamentary pile as it ap- 
pears to one standing on the northern edge of 
the harbor basin.' The major portion of the 
mosquito fleet of motor boats and cruisers is 


ab-^tnt in tlii-; picture, Ini! the stay-at-homes 
are seen at their anchoraj^cs. 

The sight of the buildings from tlii> jioint 
on Wednesday and Thursday nights last ' 

week, when they were wonderfully and mag- 
nificently illuminated in honor of the citi- 
zen of Canada, was one that has not often been 
surpassed in Canada, if, indeed, in America. 


Five thousand elect rio bulbs 'Strung-, upon 
three tons of wire which, stretched out would 
cover miles, were used to trscc the maiii lines 
of the big structure front-wing tip to wing tip. 
Over the main entrance wa§ th6 Wbrd-' ''eAN'- 
ADA" surmounted by a maple leaf, the entire 
design worked out in green lights. The general 
effect from the point whereat the camera whifch- 



1 took the above view stood was that of a mon- 
ster pyrotechnical set-piece. One was uncon- 
sciously waiting for the attendants to- touch the 
fuse and cause the ^hole to flame into bril- 
liant splendor. 

~^' Visitors to VictQtia never fail to admire this 
fine Capitol building. It pretends to nothing 
that it does not fulfil. There^is nothing about' 
it that is not genuine, and for ' substantial 

-vS6*>**iW<'M*W«s^i- X'^MT-N 

beauty it is not Second to arty, building of its 
kind in the Dominion. It stands on the site of 
the first governmental buildings, which, be- 
cause of their tfhusual structure, in which 
many panels oL glass •v^ere us'ed, giving them 
the general appearance n*f great bird-cage^, 
gave the narne of Bird Cage Walk to the por- 
tion of Government street which skirts 'the 
grouTLds on the cast. 

The Blueness of Water 

Strange as it may seem, the precise color 
of chemcially pure water is still a matter of 
controversy. Common as water is, it comes 
so near to being a universal solvent that there 
is always a matter of doubt whether its color 
may not be due to minute quantities of' some 
dissolved or suspended im|iurily. lit ■■?\atnre," 
London, W. N. Ilartlcy, writing from the 
Royal College of Science, Dublin, gives reasons 
for supposing that the color~af perfectly pure 
wafer is blue. After noting the fact that "op- 
ticaliy pure water cannot be obtained by dis- 
tillation,'- l.(- ;-ays: 

"Pure water wns prepare] i'\ Tyndall by 
melting clear 'block ice in a vacuum. Its color 
was blue when seen t|irough a tube three feet 

"The color of "a Bard' water which has been 
'^ofienofl by Clark's process may •. be seen at 
:lic ri.hic Valley water-worlcs, visible from 
the train on the up-line just south of Watford 
station, and at Joynson's paper work? at St. 
Mary Cray jn Kent. When the members of 
the Society of Chemical industry visited these 
works some time ago. they were struck by the 
very beautiful blue of the water. It was even 
suggested it had licoii purposely colored, 
with a very pure blue dyc.~ Water of similar 
purity, containing very little n>ineral matter, 
l)cing remarkable for its softness, comes from 
the Greensand below the London clay. Such 
blue water Hia-v-e-i^ottccrHrr the bedrooms" and 
])athrooms of the Euston Hotel, the supply 
comine from an artesian well. 

■'There arc two natural sources of extreme- 
ly pure water with which I am acquainted, 
and I cannot believe that the water from the 
second source receives any color or appear- 
ance of l)]ue through the reflection of light by 
fine particles in suspetision. The first is in 
the Fairy Loch beside Loch Lomond, situated 
on a little promontory sotith of Tarbert. It is 

difficult to see that there is any color in the 
water except at a point where it wells up from 
a fissure in' the rock and passes over a vein of 
milk-whive (]\\Av\/'ti- whivh crosses \hr l^'i-' 
tom ; hen It e.xhilii!. .i ! .eautiful ,bluc coior. . . 

"The .second smircc is the Wells of Dee. 
--ituated in the Larig ( Learg'Gruairiach ) at the 
foot of Ben Macdhui. .m ' i.':v\i.;i ; and 
Bracrlach, about halif-waj; bclwceii iJceside 
and Speyside. It is a small tarn or pool with 
I ' 'ttom like that of three niile^- of the pa'-^ 
nothing but large pieces of splintered red 
granitic rock. It stands about 2,700 feet above 
the •^e,! The water, .according to my recollec- 
tion, passes underneath liroken rocks in .a nar- 
row rift in the mountain side, and is derived 
from the melting snow on its northern slope 
near the summit, ' which is 1,598 feet (1,500 
feet by my aneroid) higher and above all vege- 
tation. The pool is too srhall to be shown, but 
the stream which runs out of it appears on ih( 
river of that name. The, bottom of the ,4niall 
pool is' vi.sibic everywhere, and its a[)p.trent 
color .varies in proportion t" irs'llepth, being 
dull red near the sides, to a brown ish-])nri)le 
where it is absolutely decpestj The ]uire blue 
color 'if the water was, only seen on pniinp.^ a 
\vliit(> object, such as a piece of porcelain, into 
ii. The etTectof the blue color of the water 
oil ihe light reflected from the red rock, at the 
bottom is to gi>'C it a purple tint. 

"It is evident that the blue is wliolly due 
to the absorption of rays of complementary 
color, because if it were not, the -reflection of 
blue rays by suspended fiTie jiarticles would 
be seen against a flark ground on looking into 
the water. As a matter of fact, the water 
when undisturbed on the surface, was not visi- 
ble ; it was very difficult to form any idea of 
its depth, everything on the bottom being 
sharply defined. These observations were made 
under a diffused and subdued light in a very 

clear atmosphere, the light being of a uniform 
intensity over the whole sky, which was en- 
tirely covered with small greyish clouds, no 
direct sunlight or blue sky being vi.sible any- 
where. A fact adverse to the view that the 
blue could be reflected light is that the Ifght 
which escapes reflection lias a reddish-golden 
color., In a hazy atmosphere when the sum is 
low and we look towards, it, we see the, golden 
color; in the opposite direction we see the blue 
opalescence. The white light from the sky 
tra\'erscd the w|ter in two directioni>, tq the 
boi m ! then, by reflection, bktk ag;ain, 

and u IS sale to say that these two opj>ostte- 
colors would neutralize each other."

Colored Underwear a Benefit 


King Edward was Very fond of his eldest 
grandson, and liked talking to him. When. the 
little Prince was eleven his grandfather j^sked 
him what he was studying in his history Ics- 
.soiT, and was told, "Oh, all abo-" ''•■■•1-in A\'ar- 
bcck." The King asked, "W l'<M-ku. 

Warbek?" and the lad replied, Ii ndcd 

that he was the so-; of a king. I'-ii; in ^>.^^n■■ ;

Colored underwear for hot, sunny climates 
is advocated in a leading e^litorial by Americaii 
-Medicine (New York). When it was first 
suggested, says this paper, that :iJ<in.s were 
pigmented to- exclude too much light, physi- 
cians were sceptical, preferring to consider 
nature a fool to create fcolorcd races in light 
countries; The light theory that was, utterly 
rejected h x_A.Ulg.OJC.ans has since been accepted 
by the Frenjch and British, however, who arc 
now taking steps in the tropics to give thetn- 
selves the same protection by colored under- 
clothing thait nature gives, to the natives by 
colored' skins — another pf the innumerable in- 
stances where an American idea must go to 
i^urope for acceptance.' The writer continues: 

'5Kow that the, subject is. considered .settled 
abroad, we are tardily takitig it up: In an 
article in The Medical press of June 2, 1901), 
Drs. Phalen and Nic,bQls describe the ejtjferi- 
.incnt,«> npw being rtiade to find out whether it 
will do any good' to protect our soldi ers fi^orn

tions so common in the light season. That is,

might be well to direct.attenti.on to the...need 
of better head-covering if one is exposed to, 
the sun. A,I1 tropical natives use elaborate, 
head-dresses for this purpose, and it is noticed 
that our own. outdoor workmen have an iti- 
stinctive desire tor black felt hats. Agricultural 
laborers, ill our South, and Mexicans also, use 
opaque hats tp-a large extent, and prefer those 
with wide brims. ..The' dinky little straw Ji at s 
with narrow brims /affected by city dwellers 
afford no protectieri at all in the sun, and may 
be the cause of mitch -suffering as Well as 
actual sickness if the wearers do not remain
